Broomfield

Broomfield (born Alfred Lamar Broomfield on September 29, 1954 in Vidalia, Georgia) is a male R&B singer who is the brother of R&B singers Eugene & Dee Dee Wilde and was also part of a family project called Simplicious with his siblings.

Broomfield first began singing in local churches and during his high school years, he began to play the tenor saxophone. He later began playing guitar which subsequently led to him becoming a drummer & an all-around musician.
In 1987, Broomfield released his self-titled debut album which didn't appear to chart at all on the Billboard charts.

The first single released from the album "She Can't Get Serious" didn't appear to make the Billboard music charts at all.
The last single from the album "Don't Cover Up Your Feelings" was released, but once again, it's unknown how or if the single ever charted.
In 1991 (four years after his debut album), he released his sophomore album "Certain Kinds of Weather" which failed to make any impact on the charts either.

After that, Broomfield took a break from the music business. In 2008, it was revealed that one of his sons had passed away and he was starting to return to music, but nothing much has been heard since then and now it's unknown what he's up to these days.
